irresponsible, referring to stephen colbert's testimony on friday boehner said this about the democrats. >> they have time to bring a comedian to washington, d.c. but they don't have time to eliminate the uncertainty by extending all of the current tax rates? i think that is irresponsible. >> also on "fox news sunday" chris wallace pressed boehner on whether he would be able to support just middle income tax cuts. he said previously he would if that was the only option on the table. he said this time he wants all the tax cuts extended repeatedly blasting democrats for not taking up the vote this week. >>> an unruly passenger caused a problem for passengers last night. it had only been in the air 30 minutes when the passenger dispush bans occurred. delta is not releasing what happened. the plane returned to seattle and the flight was canceled and all the passengers had to stay overnight to wait for the next flight to amsterdam. >>> this is a fox news alert. we have learned that the pentagon spent more than $47,000 to purchase and then burn thousands of copies of a book that had been prev

this. still ahead, "the washington post" ezra klein will join us. >>> last night, stephen colbert was honoring the troops. he got a surprise guest. look who popped up selling hot dogs to the troops? >> wow. okay. i'd like that. >> vice president joe biden. tell you what he was doing there when we come back. look at all this stuff for coffee. oh there's tons. french presses, expresso tampers, filters. it can get really complicated. not nearly as complicated as shipping it, though. i mean shipping is a hassle. not with priority mail flat rate boxes from the postal service. if it fits it ships anywhere in the country for a low flat rate. that is easy. best news i've heard all day! i'm soooo amped! . i mean not amped. excited. well, sort of amped. really kind of in between. have you ever thought about decaf? do you think that would help? yeah. priority mail flat rate box shipping starts at $4.95, only from the postal service. a simpler way to ship.
